If you don't care for waving around flags and singing the national anthem on 26 January, then consider spending the day at Barangaroo Reserve. Proceedings will kick off at dawn, with a Sunrise Ceremony conducted by the Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council, followed by Bayala-Bayara: Sing Up Country, a Sydney Festival performance that's all about reinstating Sydney songlines. Next up, a mourning fire will travel from Me-mel (Goat Island) to Barangaroo Reserve.

From 8:30am, celebrity chef Jared Ingersoll will be serving up an all-day brunch, featuring both international and local dishes, including meat pies, bacon-and-egg rolls and avocado on toast. You'll be munching to a diverse soundtrack, directed by DJ Peewee Ferris and including a live performance by singer Casey Donovan.

Finally, roll up your sleeves as the sun goes down, as you'll be creating a frozen fish out of sea water, to contribute to Four Thousand Fish, a massive Sydney Festival installation celebrating Barangaroo, the Cammeraygal fisherwoman from whom the reserve gets its name.
